What are some of the greatest challenges you have had to overcome on a tour?
Here is one (not for me, someone else...)
Mark Beaumont, from Fife, completed a journey around the world, on a bike in 195 days - beating the previous record of 276 days.
He ran into some problems when navigating the U.S., got hit by an elderly driver in Louisiana, then things got worse when he went to the closest bike shop in Lafayette to get his bike fixed. Mark listed this experience "The hardest day" of the whole 195 day adventure.
